Im against our involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan because I dont believe we ever we really had a reason to go there in the first place. I believe it is all about money, and have lost a lot of good friends fighting for something in which our country as a whole will not benefit from.

It was all going so well, you had the credibility, the miltary experience and working in R&D (I too worked in Aerospace R&D for 5 years until recently for one of the largest defence contractors and never saw anything other that Aerodynamics, Stealth, Autonomous and Jet propulsion with a project on anti gravity once but that soon fizzled out) but then you get to the psycology and it crumbles for me, you take what sounds like a really good story of Area 51 and your sighting then add some psycological stuff add a gorilla in a gym and you lost me, it was like a good story with a bad ending, what was film [insert many film titles], thats the one.
Perhaps the difference between a man in a gorilla suit walking through a gym is:
a. Half the steroid junkies resemble gorrillas
b. if your concentrating and in the zone, pumping iron and sweating your pants off watching mtv you might not notice anything else
c. If you saw a video of the gorilla walking through the gym and saw yourself there not noticing it, you would more than likely be remembering the video and not the gorilla gram.
I do like the first story though, so in relation to where you saw the lights from where you were, was it coming from the hills around Area 51? I dont know the geography, were you working at a secret or public location that you can reveal?
Scientists have gathered some remarkable evidence which shows that it is possible to see something without observing it, in research that sheds new light on traffic accidents that occur when a driver "looked but failed to see", and other examples of mayhem and mishap in everyday life. The astonishing lack of attention we pay to our surroundings has been highlighted by research conducted by Dr Daniel Simons of the University of Illinois and Dr Daniel Levin of Vanderbilt University
Working with Christopher Chabris at Harvard University, Simons came up with another demonstration that has now become a classic, based on a videotape of a handful of people playing basketball. They played the tape to subjects and asked them to count the passes made by one of the teams. Around half failed to spot a woman dressed in a gorilla suit who walked slowly across the scene for nine seconds, even though this hairy interloper had passed between the players and stopped to face the camera and thump her chest. However, if people were simply asked to view the tape, they noticed the gorilla easily. The effect is so striking that some of them refused to accept they were looking at the same tape and thought that it was a different version of the video, one edited to include the ape.

Oh man. I just realized...maybe they were actually both just one object that was spinning. That actually makes more sense. It's still the strangest thing.
